Stacy Griffin — Veterinary Technician
Stacy realized her love and interest for this field when she and her husband had their first Great Dane, Bleu who was diagnosed with epilepsy at 8 months old. The constant care it took to keep him healthy opened her eyes to this field being more than just shots once a year. A few months later they rescued Lucy, a dachshund/terrier mix, at four weeks old from a puppy mill where she inevitably ended up with parvo. Lucy pulled through and has been a feisty little fireball ever since.
These experiences led to Stacy’s passion for prevention. She loves to speak about the importance of vaccines and preventative care. Her current pets consist of Lucy her little parvo survivor, Titus and Angel her rescued Great Danes. Stacy and her husband have been married since 2011 and are expecting their first child March 2019.
